The Croatian Labourists – Labour Party (Croatian: Hrvatski laburisti - Stranka rada) is a left-wing political party in Croatia.

It was formed in 2010 by a former trade unionist and People's Party MP Dragutin Lesar, who was the party's only member of parliament in the 6th assembly.[4]

In the 2011 parliamentary election, the party won six seats in the Croatian Parliament.

Ahead of the 2015 parliamentary election the party joined the ruling Croatia is Growing coalition with the Social Democratic Party of Croatia and other liberal parties. As a result, MP Mladen Novak resigned in protest and joined the green party ORaH.
